Compliance with Standards
QuestionPro has made an effort to be compliant with as many regulatory bodies as it can within the realm of Online Research, Email Marketing and Opinion Polls. Documented here are a list of the laws and regulatory institutions that we are in compliance.
Federalwide Assurance Number
The Federalwide Assurance number is assigned by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP).
University Institutional Review Boards (IRB)
IRB's generally need to approve each survey and the researcher individually. Surveys from QuestionPro have been approved for research by over 1000 universities, in the United States and worldwide. Below is a list of the few universities that have explicitly endorsed the use of QuestionPro for their students.
Surveys created through QuestionPro are Section 508 (US Federal Accessibility Guidelines) compliant. This DOES NOT apply for themes that are customized by the user.
HIPAA Compliance Training
QuestionPro has teamed up with Rutgers University to certify our staff with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance training. The staff of QuestionPro underwent a training program that emphasizes the HIPAA Privacy regulations - the major focus for most public health studies and health care providers.
